You are the Ocean
The human body does not begin and end with the skin. The boundary between the human body and the rest of the world is permeable. You are the Ocean, a large-scale interactive installation, generates ocean waves and clouds in response to brain waves of a single participant. Water, light, clouds, lightening are realistically simulated by computer code. A participant wears an EEG (Electroencephalography) head set that measures the user’s approximate attention and meditation levels via brain waves. Through relaxation and concentration, the subject can control the water and sky. Attention level affects storminess: with higher concentration, the waves get higher and the clouds thicken. By calming her mind, the subject can create a calm ocean.
